Hello Mr Luqman Ayanlade,
So you have set up an athletics club based in your local government. This is a really good action to take.I am guessing that you love sports in general and if so, can I invite you to create a short 3 minute video talking about what you do in your club? I am organising a 5 km running event for indigenes of Osun State.
